    Reflectivity layers in Paintkit

    I don't use GIMP, so I'm not sure what's available for it. You could also save it as a standard/uncompressed BMP and use DXTBmp to save the final DDS as DXT5. You'll have to pull the alpha from one of the official liveries and load it into the alpha channel slot in DXTBmp.

    Reflectivity layers in Paintkit

    The PSDs come with the reflection maps already in the alpha channels. If you're saving as DXT5 from the Photoshop Nvidia DDS plugin, it should save with the alpha in place.

    Logo light washout

    I'll respond here so that everyone knows where we're at with this. As I'm sure you can understand, we can't use third party modified files in official builds. We can however, make the appropriate changes to our source files. That said, Blend/MultiplyBlend have an unfortunate side effect of disabling the environment map when the lights are on (at dawn/dusk/night). Because of this, we'll likely go the route of custom emissive textures for each livery, as it generally looks the best.

    New Tomato Profile?

    TomatoShade was used in these shots, however the dynamic reflections system is off and no custom aircraft profile is used. What you see is just about the same as you can get with stock P3D shaders.

    Aircraft to small in relation to runway

    The 717 is to scale. KVPS has a very wide runway.

    Blurry Cockpit Textures in P3D

    The night lighting textures are still 1K, left over from the v3 and older cockpit lighting system. We'll be re-baking them in the future at 2K for v4.

    Cosmetic Exteroir

    Texture variations will be up to the repainters, to an extent. We can't do all possible combinations ourselves. To our knowledge, very few 717s have air stairs, and they are rarely used (even Volotea uses external stairs). We might do air stairs at some point, but it's not a high priority. I'd like to do plugs for the eyebrow windows, however I'm not sure if/when this will happen.
  11. Eyebrow windows likely won't happen for 1.1, but it's something I may look at in the future after all the high priority stuff is done.
